I'm with you.. I had my baby showers, everythings ready, physically, mentally ready. Yet knowing I'm still a month and a half away from due date drives me nuts.

lets see if i can find stuff for you to do...Do you have diapers, do you have a littel first Aid kit for the baby with stuff ilke cotton swabs, alcohol, baby motrin, equaphor, rash ointment, etc. do you have your bags ready and the babie's for the hospital? do you have your baby book ready? your bith plan ready?have you shosen a pediatrician? All nursing stuff ready if you are nursing like nursing pads, bras? if you are bottle feeding do you have bottles? formula?

well I am glad you have all that ready :) I still need to do some things.. But lately I have been having some mixed emotions I think its pregnancy and everytime I want to do something for the baby I get depressed or something :( I mean I am exited or at least I have been for the past months but then all of a sudden I don't want to know nothing about the baby and it freaks me out...I have stopped doing stuff for the baby's room b/c I think is to unreal and something is going to go wrong.. :( maybe that is the reason why I am awake at this time cant sleep just thinking its weeks away! How many weeks are you? have you gone thru any emotional stages in this past weeks?

To Leslie...O god, really sad to hear that..pls tell me that nothing is wrong and it's just ur fears..i hope every thing goes fine with u..i'm at the end 36 weeks and my DD is on 09/13 but the doc said i might go earlier..i wish my baby come on 08/29 coz his father's birth day is on this day and he told me if this happens it will be the greatest gift he ever had..As for emotins i think yes i had them on 32 weeks..hope what u r going thru are due to hormones..

I am almost sure its hormones, I hate pregnancy hormones!! I am scared to go into post partum depression..anyway I hope the baby is born on your hubby's birthday, it would be very nice! is it going to be a he or she? did you have a hard time shosing his/her name? can you belive that we still are not 100% sure on the name? so anyway what are you doing awake at this time? or do you not live in U.S. ?

to leslie.. I know exactly what you're feeling. I think it may be the discomforts of pregnancy. I'm in the high risk catergory, so I also seem to be worrying all the time too. I've heard of women getting depressed in the last months of pregnancy due to hormone levels. So, once that baby is in your arms...I imagine no one will be able to get the smile off your face.

hi ashley :) So have you been going thru some emotional issues also? how many weeks are you? Sometimes I feel guilty b/c I know been a mother is one of the best things that can happen to any woman (or at least that is what "all" mothers say :) so it has to be true. I do hope that when the baby is born and I see his little face I forget about everything but for some reason I feel like I am going to feel worse..maybe i am going to love him so much that I am going to be scared 24/7 thinking something can happen to him...anyway so do you have everything ready for the baby? is this your first?

To Leslie..i finally went to bed last night coz i didn't wanted my husband to get worried, but still couldn't sleep..i had two ultrasounds and they said it's a boy..i will be going again tomorrow to check it's kidneys coz they told me they are dilated and they want to check them again, hope they give me good news this time..try to relax and always think of stuff that makes u happy and every time when u feel depressed try see baby's stuff and imagine that little bundle of joy..my husband never let me feel depressed or even watch some thing on TV that might make me,coz at this time usually a woman's heart is very tender..i rememeber whenever i watched some thing sad i used to cry like a baby..try to make urself happy as much as u can..every day i enter my baby's room and turn on those soothing baby music and close my eyes, i feel like there's no better place than that room in this world..

Leslie.. the toughts of a baby coming can be overwhelming. Good thing I still work full-time, otherwise I'd be mad thinking about the babe all the time. Take a break once in a while from doing baby's stuff. Baby doesn't need alot, some things can wait.. like high chair, even stroller. Its amazing how somebody whos not here yet, can feel so real to us huh.
